Life by the Bugle
This permanent exhibit in the Field Officer’s Quarters explores the life of a frontier military officer at Fort Buford and also examines the role of women at an army post. Several objects original to Fort Buford’s days as a military post from 1866 to 1895 are displayed. The Officer of the Guard Building, also at the site, features an exhibit of objects from the SHSND collections and period reproductions.
